Effects of estrogen and progesterone on the first abdomino-inguinal mammary gland and associated blood vessels in ovariectomized adult mice were investigated morphometrically and by light and electron microscopy. Although there were no significant differences in the area of the mammary gland fat pad among ovariectomized groups, development of mammary parenchyma reached maximal degree in ovariectomized mice treated with estradiol (E) + progesterone (P). Epithelial cells of the mammary buds and… CONTINUE READING
